Seven taken to hospital after Boyer Road smash

SEVEN people were taken to the Royal Hobart Hospital following a two-car crash on Boyer Rd at Dromedary last night.

Sergeant Garth Hossack of Tasmania Police said the crash was the result of a head-on collision between a red Ford Fairmont driving towards Bridgewater and a purple Holden Commodore heading to New Norfolk. The incident took place between Millvale and Tongatabu roads.

“The 38-year-old female driver of the Commodore sustained serious injuries and was taken to the Royal Hobart Hospital where she is currently in a serious condition,” Sgt Hossack said at 1.30 this morning. The other three occupants of the Holden were taken to the hospital for observation.

“The 19-year-old driver and two passengers in the Ford also sustained injuries and were taken to the RHH,” Sgt Hossack said.

The cause of the incident is being investigated by police crash investigation services and anyone who saw either of the vehicles before the crash is asked to contact police on 131 444. Information can also be given anonymously by calling Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or online at crimestopperstas.com.au.
